Campaign Guidelines

SSMU by-laws govern all elections run by Elections SSMU and must be followed by all candidates and referendum committees throughout the election process.

The internal regulations pertaining to elections can be found here: SSMU Internal Regulations of Elections and Referenda

Internal Regulations can be changed by the Legislative Council or a General Assembly.

The CEO will email all candidates if further clarifications are required in interpreting the Electoral Regulations and post any new guidelines on this website.

Demerit System

The Demerit System serves as a general reference point for the CEO in determining the sanctions to apply for a particular infraction of campaign rules. The document is non-exhaustive and non-binding, as the CEO may choose to apply sanctions as they see fit.
